Match with us in November!

When you donate online in November,
your gift will be matched 1:1 by the Jessie Ball duPont Fund!*
and what’s more…
your Giving Tuesday gift (made Nov. 29) will be matched 2:1!

Friends near and far, we have a fantastic opportunity to sustain Old Swedes Historic Site, a cornerstone of Wilmington and a significant part of American history. Your donation, matched by the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, enables us to face the challenges of the future head-on.

How will it work? On Giving Tuesday, an online gift of $100 would be matched with $200 from the duPont Fund. Every other day in November, an online gift of $100 would be matched with $100 from the duPont Fund. Matching is capped at $500 per donation – but donors may make multiple donations.

Old Swedes today remains a vital gathering place, where residents and visitors explore the continuing history of the community, the site and its people. We are able to do this with your generous and loyal support, and we are grateful for the many gifts our widespread community offers.

Will you take the time today to help ensure Old Swedes’ future? Your support now, more than ever, is immensely important to our future success and sustainability. Thank you!
